Rewatch podcasts have been around for a while, but in recent years a new trend of celebrity hosted rewatch podcasts has taken center stage in entertainment. Actors are revisiting the roles they played over a decade ago and bringing their fans along for the ride.
However, as this type of podcast becomes more popular, it can be easy to miss a rewatch gem in the thousands of podcasts out there. To make things a bit easier, we have gathered a quick A-Z list of 10 rewatch podcasts you should check out this summer.
Listen to Zooey Deschanel talk about New Girl during your morning walk, or daydream about life in Bridgerton’s Regency Era during a long road trip. Whatever it is you are looking for, iHeartRadio has you covered.
1. 90210MG — Beverly Hills, 90210
This summer, sip on something cold, layout on a beach towel, and revisit the era where we were obsessed with West Coast living. It’s been over 30-years since the "Walsh" family moved from the chilly Midwest to the palm tree studded avenues of Beverly Hills and experienced California culture shock.
Hosts Jennie Garth (“Kelly Taylor”) and Tori Spelling (“Donna Martin”) are rewatching the 10-season teen drama that dominated the 1990’s and influenced TV for years to come.

The trio break down every detail of the show from the early 2000’s fashion to finding out what “Dan Scott’s” problem was.
If you think about dribbling a basketball and walking in slow motion across a bridge whenever you hear Gavin DeGraw’s "I Don't Want To Be," this is the podcast for you!

7. I Am All In with Scott Patterson — Gilmore Girls
The owner of Luke’s Diner himself is rewatching every episode of Gilmore Girls and much like the fabled diner of Stars Hollow, it’s a place the show’s characters are highly likely to drop by.
